Design Wall Monday

I have my tumbler top assembled. But when I stepped back to look at it, I started feeling like it should be bigger.

I don’t feel like cutting anymore for this, but I know I won’t be satisfied with it as is. It is in danger of heading back to the UFO pile. While pondering that, I pulled out this UFO.

This is decades old. All appliqué is done by top stitching. This has made the strips a bit wonky and wavy. But that green I used in the tumblers is inspiring me to finish this.

Stay tuned.

    Of course I can`t see proportions or true colors, but it looks as though the applique strips could make a nice border to the tumblers.
    However I’m sure you will come up with something that you like.

    I think your dissatisfaction with the tumbler quilt is that it’s too square — adding a couple of rows to lengthen it will improvde the proportions. You can do it! The vines are very nice — I’ll be sure to see you how set them.

  5. Do you have a specific purpose in mind for the tumbler quilt? Perhaps having a destination will help you be more confident about size.
